Askinosie Chocolate and Red Wine (Best Friends!)

I eat some serious chocolate.  I spend way too much money on chocolate and whenever I discover a new brand I shout from the rooftops about the deliciousness that is derived from the cocoa bean.  My love for chocolate is further exemplified by the fact that I received no less than 10 gourmet chocolate bars from various friends for Christmas.  Because all blogging advice books tell you to talk about things you have a passion for, I’ve decided to start a little chocolate feature.  This week I want to talk about Askinosie Chocolate.

Askinosie Chocolate and Wine

Specifically, let’s talk about their 70% dark itty bar.  This tiny morsel of chocolate is totally affordable at only $.75 and packs a big flavor punch.  While many dark chocolates are bitter, this is overflowing with fruity notes that give you a surprisingly bright piece of dark chocolate.

All of the chocolate make by Askinosie comes from beans grown by farmers that have a personal relationship with the geniuses behind Askinosie.  These little chocolate bars are full of love and I think you can really taste it.  There’s nothing like buying a quality product.  You truly enjoy it and your money goes to support good business practices, small businesses, and hopefully a better future.  I know, I know…I’m just talking about a $.75 piece of chocolate but I truly believe that supporting great businesses like this makes a huge difference in the world.

Back on topic!  This chocolate is awesome.  Do yourself a favor and give it a try :).  I’ll be back soon with another favorite chocolate for you all to taste.  Might I also recommend eating it with a glass of red wine?  That’s my style but if it doesn’t suit you the chocolate is fabulous all by itself!
